Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Man City’s Raheem Sterling insist they still plan to bomb at this summer’s World Cup, despite tearing up the Champions League.
England supporters turned keen gamblers have been getting increasingly anxious that matches against Panama and Tunisia might not present the fabulous betting opportunities they’d initially appeared to.
But Kane and Sterling moved to quell concerns with a joint statement released this morning.
It read: “We understand fans’ concerns about our scintillating form in Europe’s premier club competition, but don’t forget we’re playing with foreigners in those games.
“Their carefully nurtured skills and cool temperaments enable us to hit the kinds of heights we just won’t be able to alongside Phil Jones and Jordan Henderson.
“So if you’re growing fearful that you might not be quids-in again this summer, or you missed out on the 8/1 Iceland jackpot at Euro 2016 and want a piece of the action, then don’t worry.
“Our recent showings give no indication of what you can expect from us in Russia, where Harry will once again be taking corners and Raheem will be benched in favour of Jake Livermore.
